Looks like we're gonna give it a go for another year -- please join us!

Below, I'll quote the first post from the original thread to give newcomers an idea of what we're doing here. The short version is this: each month we pick five topics, and then spend the month trying to photograph those topics.

I'll update this post each month with the new topics. I'm selecting the topics for January and will be adding them to this post soon, maybe even tonight. After that, I'll ask for volunteers or I'll message active Hunters to ask them to take a month. If no one volunteers or if someone volunteers and then for some reason can't or for whatever reason doesn't make their picks, I'll just go ahead and pick them myself.

The idea behind this is to get out and shoot more – and to look for subjects where perhaps you ordinarily wouldn’t.

I’m going to list five topics/subjects and over the course of the month I’ll take photographs representing each one – or at least representing my interpretation of each one. Basically, anything goes. If one of the subjects is “red” and for whatever reason that inspires me to take a photo of something yellow, I’m okay with that – just so it gets me to look for photos in places I might not ordinarily look for photos. In the past, I've found that if a word such as "red" is on the list I'll find myself looking at all things red all month long -- and that's kind of the point. I’m not sure it’s really a “competition”, other than with yourself, but I wasn’t sure where else to post this.

At the end of the month I’ll post five photos. It'll probably be one of each word, but not necessarily. I hope you’ll join me, and share your results at the end of the month. And if you do join me and share your work, perhaps you might want to volunteer to pick five words/topics for an upcoming month.

One approach I've used in the past is to take a photo of everything on the list as early in the month as I can, and then the rest of the month I'll be looking for opportunities to improve on what I already have. So I might take a crappyish snapshot of some stairs today, and then next week try to find prettier or more interesting stairs or try to get them in more interesting light, or find a whole 'nother interpretation of "stairs" altogether where I'm shooting something in nature that reminds me of stairs. Anyway, if you decide to go along you may be surprised at how much time you spend looking for something that fits your idea of "almost pretty" and how much fun you have deciding on how best to photograph it. I hope so!

I'm going to use this post as a list of each month's topic-pickers.

If anyone who was a topic-picker any month last year would be willing to volunteer to take a month this year, let me know and I'll add you to the list. After that, I'll open it up to anyone else who was active in last year's thread, and then to newcomers to this year's thread.

JANUARY: MichiTimm
FEBRUARY: OldCrow
MARCH: OhioHick
APRIL: Benitoite
MAY: EastBayGirl
JUNE: MichiTimm
JULY: OldCrow
AUGUST: Philk54
SEPTEMBER: Ltdave
OCTOBER: OhioHick
